The greatest reward and luxury of travel
is to be able to experience everyday things

as if for the first time.

— Bill Bryson

 

 

 

PictoQuesto specialises in travelogue images and world portraits.

 

Meeting people around the globe is so rewarding, but it is not an opportunity available to everyone.

 

On this site, you can see the world through my eyes, and order cards, notebooks and coffee table books so you can bring the world to your home or office.

MONGOLIA

 

About the Project

 

Travelling to Mongolia, I was unsure what to expect in terms of the landscape, although I had researched cultural etiquette and customs, and learned a little of the language.

 

Hospitality has always been extremely important in Mongolian culture, possibly because visitors often travel great distances, so I knew that even learning a few words might be appreciated, along with my simple gifts and by offering tobacco and vodka.

 

During my travels, a herder and his family would simply appear, offering food or fermented milk, or stop on the edge of our camp observing with mild curiosity. An entire family allowed us to sit and snack with them as they prepared a ger for an upcoming wedding. And when we were desperately low on fresh drinking water, a young man allowed us to refill our tanks from the village well.  {Natasha}
